Why Jarvis Law?
What is the Constitution? Why does the Constitution matter? What effect does it have on your
life? Is it even relevant in the twenty-second century? These are some of the questions we talk about in our office. Our answers to these questions run the gambit, but that’s not why you’re here. If you clicked on this page, you are either curious, which is great, or you have a problem and you need our help (which is at your Service). So let’s talk about what falls into the practice area, constitutional law, and whether or not you might want to reach out to us for legal help.
We handle first Amendment cases. This Amendment protects your right to speak, to worship religion in the way your conscience dictates, and it prevents the federal government from establishing one religion over another. We also handle Fourteenth Amendment cases—for those of you who watch a little television, that refers to “section 1983 cases” where a citizen can sue a state actor for violating their federal
“substantive due process rights.” Whoa, what does that mean for you, the consumer who is looking for help? You’ve heard of the Loudoun County school board case where the girl was sexually assaulted by a transgender boy? That case involves establishment of religion when it runs up against nondiscrimination policies (like those that are incorporated in the 14th Amendment). Do we handle this sort of case? Absolutely yes. As it stands, our firm is handling a national case that brings state actors from Maryland and Virginia to federal court to answer for how they handled bullying and sex trafficking of a transgender boy.
With experience finding creative ways to interpret and enforce your rights, and a love of both the practical and the ideology basis of your state and federal Constitution, we will fight with you and for you—to ensure that your inherent rights to life, liberty, property and the pursuit of happiness are preserved and kept safe.
“If there is any fixed star in our constitutional constellation, it is that no official, high or petty, can prescribe what shall be orthodox in politics, nationalism, religion, or other matters of opinion or force citizens to confess by word or act their faith therein.”
-Justice Robert H. Jackson, 1941-1954
